GUI admin tools should work with AT-SPI

Registered by Henrik Nilsen Omma on 2006-06-07

Ubuntu uses the sudo system to access system administration tools, including the GUI based ones. This presents a unique accessibility limitation for us in that the admin utilities running as root do not communicate their access information to the at-spi enabled assistive tools that run in the user's native session. Whether this is a bug in X, in sudo or in AT-SPI it needs to be resolved so that ubuntu users who rely on AT-SPI can use the admin tools.
